UPDATE: According to public health officials, there has been a notable transmission of COVID-19 at events and public gatherings. To encourage social distancing recommended by health officials, we are cancelling or postponing all scheduled programming in March and April 2020. We look forward to reconnecting with our community at future opportunities.

Please join us Thursday, April 2nd from 6:00 – 7:30 pm to hear formal presentations of the research completed by Emily Carr design students through the Design for Startups program. Each designer will give a 5-minute presentation summarizing the work they concluded with the participating BC-based startup companies. All welcome!

Boardroom (D2315), Emily Carr University of Art + Design
520 East 1st Avenue

Between January and March 2020, nine student designers worked directly with the technical and business leads of ten BC companies to explore and develop a new methodology for connecting design to Internet startups. Student designers considered existing design gaps, perform user interface/usability studies, and develop design strategies for the companies in residence.

Realized with support from Digital Technology Supercluster and Innovate BC, Design for Startups is a project of the Shumka Centre for Creative Entrepreneurship.
